  • Started work.

    I don't know exactly what I'll be doing yet. I'm a bit worried, because I've let myself get so out of shape. I will be working nights doing something tedious and repetitive, though. I'm worried I'll be a big burden on my coworkers. I'm just waiting to get yelled at by someone.

    Which I guess is no big deal. It's also scary, because they use tons of ammonia nitrate in the freezing process. The plant has literally blown up before.

    Worst case scenario: I can't hack it and embarrass myself. And I don't know what's wrong with me, but I almost had a panic attack just sitting there this morning. I felt super stoned.

    I'm starting to find it more appealing to just be some working class guy, though. I used to want to be famous, but after I finally looked at things realistically, which took quite a while, I feel now the more I'm knocked off my cloud the better I feel personally. The limelight wasn't for me, never could have been, obviously. How ghastly I look now.

    I could feasibly enjoy this. But like I said, my body is not up to task.

    We'll see, we'll see.

      Not a bad worst case scenario when you think about it. I mean you are now getting work experience and putting an end to the gap in your resume. Very often these menial jobs are stepping stones to better opportunities.

      Gain as much skills on this job as you can. These skills are transferable to bigger and better jobs and gigs.

        These guys have everything, even their own hospital. Hey, and they'll pay me 22 dollars every time I get the jab.

        It's not so bad. At least I'm trying. It's hard for me to pay attention, for obvious reasons, but I'm not just mooching off of people. Not that that's always wrong.

        There is upward mobility, too. It's a good company. And the safety lady said we'll all probably be confused at first -- just show up for work.

        I'm not much, but I am dependable.

        It's just better this way. I can start my 401k pretty high. I might go for 10%.

        I don't.
        to live like a refugee.

          6-eyed depending on where you go, a donut and coffee might cost more than $22 anyway.

              Refugee is the exact song to listen to.

              Wishing you the best, Andy!
